Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots top $ 400 million – Telemundo Phoenix / Tucson

2021 has started with a promising sign: the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots soared to exceed $ 400 million.

After no one guessed all the numbers for the Friday and Saturday drawings, the Powerball increased his jackpot to $ 410 million for the upcoming drawing on Wednesday, which would be the largest since March 2019 when a person from Wisconsin took home $ 768.4 million.

For his part, Mega Millions announced that it will increase its jackpot to $ 432 million by Tuesday night.

If anyone were to win it, it would be the 10th largest prize in Mega Millions history, and the largest since June 2019.

Interestingly, one person won a prize of $ 451 million on January 5, 2018. “Will history repeat itself with a great winner next Tuesday?” The workers of the Mega Millions organization asked in a statement.

For its part, CNBC reminds us that the probability that a single ticket matches all six numbers in both draws are minuscule, with 1 in 302 million for the Mega Millions and 1 in 292 million for the Powerball.
